BLACK HISTORY MONTH: Linda Coleman: A tireless advocate for state employees and retirees

Feb 15, 2021

Throughout an exemplary career in public service, Linda Coleman has always worked to call attention to the needs of state employees and retirees. Whether in her career in state agencies, her three terms in the N.C. House, or her statewide and Congressional campaigns, she has always fought for working families.

Coleman was the first woman in the state's history to serve as Director of State Personnel and came up just 7,000 votes short of being its first African-American woman Lieutenant Governor. SEANC is proud to salute her pioneering leadership in Black History Month. Coleman sat down with SEANC Executive Director Ardis Watkins for a discussion of her career, her philosophy, and her future!
